Sunday, November 6, 2022
This Week on History Happy Hour: Meet an extraordinary heroine of the French Resistance: Marie-Madeline Fourcade. In 1941, this thirty-one-year-old Frenchwoman and mother of two became leader of a vast Resistance organization. No other French spy network lasted as long or supplied as much crucial intelligence to the Allies, and Fourcade herself would face a personal reckoning with the Gestapo.
In an encore episode, Chris and Rick welcome author Lynne Olson to talk about her book The Secret War of Madam Fourcade
Sunday at 4 PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
